A pair of American Avocets look across the water. People are often surprised to learn that shorebirds like these can be found in the desert - most people expect to see them only on the ocean shore. But Avocets and many other shorebirds are often found at very shallow lakes, like Cochise Lakes, which actually is the last stage of the waste treatment plant in Willcox. On this day, there were hundreds of Avocets, Black-Necked Stilts, Black-Crowned Night Herons, Phalaropes, and several other types of shorebird.
